    Spam usually = scam. I hate spammers and scammers. I wish I could get ahold of these little fu**ers in person and slam them for their stupid scams.
    What I want for x-mas. Me in a room with 50 of these little bastards with locked doors.
    My 2 cents. Sorry if I offended anyone.



    Diving is my release from this chaotic world we live in. Without it or my wife I would go crazy.

    I like sending them messages (from a throwaway e-mail). I play with their heads and waste as much of their time as possible.

    Kinda like me. I forward all Nigerian type emails to the FBI.

    Every once in a while I get one asking to send students for training. They want to know prices, dictate length of courses, tell me I need to arrange lodging, etc.. Then they want to send a check for more. Out of which the "student's" spending money will come. That, of course, I have to send back to them. String em along a bit and then require payment in silver or gold bar at current prices plus 10% "handling fees" to me.

    Not one speck of even gold dust or a silver nugget so far. But I'm hoping!

    Even better are the one from the lawyers in London who make rednecks look like ivy league star academics. Love those guys to. They are even more fun to mess with.
